My mom finally allowed me to get a raspberry pi! I'm really excited.

Now I have two packages to look forward to... A bunch of books and a raspberry pi!

Except she called it an apple pie. She said send me a link to the apple pie you wanted lol.

    Magical absolutely magical. @Michelle. What books?

    Congrats, but remember: "With great power comes great responsibility"

    Assuming you've got a Pi 3, that one would be 64 bit compatible as it's a 64bit Arm v8, however, raspberry only offers a 32bit os (to not break compatibility with older ones and the pi zero line).

    If you want a 64bit os, check out this project: https://github.com/bamarni/pi64
    Got one running with it and seams to work good so far.

    P.s.let me know what you're doing with it, I'm aöways looking for inspiration what to build next. Currently mine has PiHole and a Spotify Connect service running.

    @ThaOneDude

    Stephen King - Misery

    Brenna Yovanoff - Paper Valentine

    Brenna Yovanoff - The Replacement

    Scot Gardener - The dead I know

    I can't wait till they come!! :)

    I'll be sure to remember it. :)

    @Null-Device
    Aww I'm sorry to hear that! I hope you end up getting it one day. :(

    Let the baking begin! :D
    Do you have an idea what you'll do with the RPi?

    @Wack
    Yeah, it's the pi 3. I'm getting the canakit.

    Thanks for the link. I'll totally check it out.

    I'm not entirely sure. I'm thinking of building a tablet with it, and loading the pi with an OS I'll make. This is assuming the raspberry pi 3 can use custom operating systems.

    @nin0x03
    Not 100% sure quite yet, but as I said above, I might use it to build a tablet with my own OS :)

    @Null-Device
    You just need project ideas is all. Maybe then you'll use it.
  • 7
    @Michelle it can. In the end it's just a Arm v8 processor. Plus some other stuff. The pi as written above by default falls back to a 32 bit mode. It will even display, the processor as a Arm v7 32 bit. There's a flag however to not do that and to enter the 64 bit mode. So if you write your own os, you might want to pay attention to that. (What exactly you'll have to do is burried deep down somewhere in the docs... Have fun digging)

    Oh, thanks for the warning. I'll definitely keep that in mind!

    No no. You don't have to spam me, it's okay! I realized your account is new so I gave you a little spam. You didn't have to return it, really. :)

    You really didn't have to do that, but thank you. c:

    Nope. I wanted to read the book first, because the book is always better than the movie.

    I've watched around 20 of King's movies, but I've read the books before watching all those movies. :)

    I've just spent the whole day to write some letters on a 32x8 LED Matrix using my raspberry pi. Sometimes arduino is enough.
    Ok this is random, but I just wanted to share this information
  • 5
    @GarreauArthur Awesome! Now create a library to simplify this, put it on Github and you'll get a star :)
  • 3
    @GarreauArthur I have one RGB 8x8 matrix.i tried a library from github but it didn't work and exams was coming near so I stopped trying.but now I have some free time,and I'm really trying to get it running.
  • 2
    @GarreauArthur btw mine uses the 74HC595 chip,what chip does your matrix use?
  • 2
    @zmzmuazzam98 It uses 4 Max7219 in cascade. I found a library called multilineMAX7219, but I need to edit it a little bit to make it works properly

    @Michelle @Null-Device

    My r-pi is running my own VPN server and also is running pihole. They are great for small servers.

    Mom? What?
    *Looks around*
    How old are you people?
    Fuck I must be getting old...

    @HRT-713 It's not that bad, Pi consumes only like 4W of power so...

    @Froot I mean it's other uses...

    @Froot
    I'm 16 lol. I thought you knew my age.

    @Michelle btw. If you want to try hardware and operating systems, get an FPGA (field programable aray) and implement a processor on it. At university we've implemented a "simple"* mips and wrote some small assembly for the display and the switches. Can highly reccomend and if you got questions, feel free to ask!

    *32bit multi stage, little endian mips processor, without the flpatingpoint operations/coprosessor

    @Wack
    Oh, wow. I'll definitely check it out. Thanks for the suggestion! :)

    Raspberry Pi is the best thing on earth. I drool everytime I talk and think about it. Congrats.

    @Wack @Jmhorwood20 Dafuq just happened here? So many questions...

    @Froot
    Same here...

    @Froot Pretty certain @Wack just replied to @Jmhorwood20 comment that he put an apple sticker on his raspi.

    @PrivateGER absolutely. Sorry if it lead to confusion!

    @Jmhorwood20 no worries mate

    @Michelle microkernel or monolithic one?

    @Michelle regarding that tablet project, any updates?

    @VTCoder
    Haven't worked on it quite yet. I still need to get a few things, and my mom thinks lithium batteries are dangerous.

    @Michelle could you get on discord.... Need to all you a bit

    @VTCoder
    I'm on.
